We at Organfax were concerned upon receiving a circular email from Dirkjan Ranzijn stating that he was currently in Valencia, Spain and having been mugged, was in desperate need for help having had his money, phone and credit cards stolen. As this immediately aroused our suspicions, we quickly made contact with Dirkjan and he of course assured us that this was not the case and he was in fact fit and well, not in Spain and in no form of trouble whatsoever.
The email asks for his friends to immediately send a money transfer via a Western Union account in order to help him finance a flight home from Spain..... We have already received several concerned phone calls from fellow friends who also intercepted the email.
Please be advised that is most certainly a SCAM... UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD YOU TAKE THE EMAIL SERIOUSLY, NOR SEND ANY MONEY.
We understand that Dirkjan has now contacted the relevant Police and Authorities who are now investigating the source of the fraudulent communication. As ever, it goes without saying that we must all remain vigilant where this kind of scam is concerned.
